Hi,

Yes it is possible to arrange a tour from Bentota to Kandy. But if it is a going to be a day tour you are mostly spending the time on the road. So its better arrange an overnight stay or two nights in Kandy to get the maximum out of it.

You have mentioned to see elephants, so i think you are talking about the Pinnawala elephant orphanage.

Hi

Most probably you have to pay hotel in Bentota. There for even one day in Kandy also enough. One way to Kandy you can visit elephant orphanage. Evening can visit temple of tooth. Next day on the way to bentota can visit botanical garden / tea factory and tea plantation .

Hire a car/van with driver. There are plenty of hotel/guesthouses and October being off season so rooms should be available aplenty on arrival.

You need minimum tow days Kandy and have enough place to visit etc to Elephants. Take a car or van start 5am from Bentota because you have to be 9.15 in Elephant orphanage. next day you arrive at 5pm to Bentota. This period you can get enough hotel and guest house. But you have to see about weather because it change time to time.
